Graduate Studies: Industrial-Organizational

Why Guelph for I-O?

We believe a key strength of the Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology program at the University of Guelph is our balanced approach to graduate education. We highly value the scientist-practitioner model in which both the research and practice skills of our graduate students are developed. Below we outline how both of these skill-sets are developed in our program.
